What would you observe when zinc is added to a solution of iron (II) sulphate? Write the chemical reaction that takes place.
Name two metals (other than zinc and iron) which can displace hydrogen from dilute hydrochloric acid?
Samples of four metals A, B, C and D were taken and added to the following solution one by one. The results obtained have been tabulated as follows.
|Metal||Iron (II) sulphate||Cooper (II) sulphate||Zinc sulphate||Silver nitrate|
|C.||No reaction||No reaction||No reaction||Displacement|
|D.||No reaction||No reaction||No reaction||No reaction|
Use the Table above to answer the following questions about metals A, B, C and D.
(i) Which is the most reactive metal?
(ii) What would you observe if B is added to a solution of copper (II) sulphate?
(iii) Arrange the metals A, B, C and D in the order of decreasing reactivity.
Write the equation for the reaction of Iron with dilute hydrochloric acid.
Name the products formed. Also indicate the physical states of all the substances involved.
